What Do They Mean by Choice

Today marks my thirtieth birthday.  I will have much more to say about that in a separate post.  Tomorrow marks the thirty-eighth anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and throughout this nation, there are rallies being held to celebrate the freedom to "choose."  I am one of the lucky ones.  Rallies are being held to celebrate the fact that a full third of my generation and a full third of the generation behind me has perished at the abortionists' hands.  And the thing is, I know that I have mattered.  I have loved and been loved.  I have made a difference to people.  And I was a choice?  That is not pride speaking; it is a matter of fact common to all living people.  But, to NARAL and others, I was just a choice.  Maybe someday they can explain, what do they mean by choice . . .


  1. Happy Birthday! I prayed for you and your parents at Mass this evening- I was blessed to have a TLM to go to this evening.

  2. Happy Birthday, Father Tyler!

    Great sermon at STM this morning! I definitely related to the childhood memory of being picked for teams, but I'd never made the jump to what the fishy-smelling, unqualified twelve apostles were able to do with the gift of the Holy Spirit. I'm chosen by God--and he's got the winning team!

    Thank you for being a priest, and, through your gift of preaching, stretching us to see what great things God has in store for us!
